Ali Bird

Therapeutic Art Teacher

I am a Fine Art Graduate and artistic jack-of-all-trades/mixed media artist.

My area of expertise is in Art for Wellbeing, having worked for 12 years with young people in a psychiatric inpatient setting. This is where I discovered the joy of enabling others to develop their creativity and the potentially transforming power this can have on how a person sees themselves. I am a natural connector, gentle, encouraging and warm and enjoy running small groups for people of any age to engage in creative practices. I also enjoy leading therapeutic singing sessions for the elderly with my ukulele. I'm currently working with Refugees with a national charity and running online Art and Craft groups. My favourite colour is all shades of blue.
